Social Entrepreneur | Independent Ambassador Business Owner at Noonday Collection
I am an Air Force Veteran spouse, older sister, aunt, unapologetic advocate, stylist and storyteller leading a life of passion, purpose and impact. While living in East Asia and exploring the countries of East and Southeast Asia my heart for advocacy for the women and families in these countries burst wide open. I started a purpose driven business in 2016 in partnership with Noonday Collection to create dignified jobs for women and families living in vulnerable communities of underdeveloped nations where they use skills that have been passed down for generations. My experiences while stationed in Southwest Asia a few years later only intensified my desire to continue creating meaningful opportunities for others. I could not stifle the passion in my heart that developed the ardent belief that every woman is worthy of a good job, safety and access to an education, and every family deserves access to dignified jobs at home instead of enduring separation in pursuit of providing for family. I have a deep fondness for traversing the world and will have explored all seven continents by the end of 2023. I am an ardent scuba diver and ocean torchbearer.
I am your one-stop shop for ethically and sustainably made jewelry, accessories, leather goods, clothing, gifts, holiday items, and small batch roasted coffee. Every purchase helps create dignified work for artisans in vulnerable communities around the globe and supports our education scholarships for K-12 students in Uganda and bright young university bound females in East Africa. They also help me support Dancing for a Difference, a local 501c3 dance studio for children of all abilities that I sponsor, as well as two of the studios teams.
Dignified jobs change the trajectory of a life and stop human trafficking.
How it’s made matters. The hands that make it matter most.
